Shweta Tripathi Age, Height, Family, Husband, Net Worth, Biography & More
Shweta Tripathi is a famous Indian Bollywood actress.
Shweta Tripathi, Vicky Kaushal, and Richa Chadha's romance drama ' Masaan' completed 5 years today since its successful release in 2015. The directorial debut of Neeraj Ghaywan was among the hit Bollywood films of the year which had received several critical acclamations, nationally and even internationally.
In an exclusive interview with Etimes, ‘Masaan’ fame actress Shweta Tripathi shares what makes her debut film close to the heart. She also opened up about the ongoing insider and outsider debate in the film industry and revealed what has been her experience in Bollywood ever since the success of the film.
The funny thing is, actually I was playing the role of a child but I was not a child in real life. I was maybe 23-24 years old when I started acting but the character I was playing was in school. So, the characters I have played have been 10 to 12 years younger than my actual age and I enjoy it because that’s what makes me how I am, I never take myself too seriously. No matter how dramatic it gets, the age of my characters has never crossed 24 years old.
What I really like about this film is the character of Shaalu which was written for me. So, I tested for the part and I got it. I believe in ‘ character par Likha ha actor ka name because what I had done earlier was nothing similar to this. ‘Masaan’ was worlds apart. But, I think Neeraj Ghaywan saw Shaalu in me. For me, as an actor, the most important thing is to do justice to the character just how the writer and the director have imagined it to be. My award is that my writer and director are happy and it makes me happy, nothing is more important to me.
When we were looking for the role of Deepak and auditions were going on for the character, I remember hearing from someone that Deepak can’t be too tall because I was 5 ft and I was happy knowing that the male lead would be picked according to the female, it was great. Then, Vicky Kaushal comes into the picture who was 6 ft but then that was amazing because to be an actor your height and skin color doesn’t matter. I am very glad about my choices cause I never felt I was inadequate in any way. The credit goes to my family. I find joy in breaking the societal stereotypes about beauty standards because I want my characters to be different from me and each other. I feel very blessed that I was working with the right kind of people, for this case, Neeraj Ghaywan, Varun Grover, and Avinash Arun, you just can’t go wrong cause you’re in safe hands. I will choose ‘Masaan’ as my debut film over and over again.
Absolutely, we are in touch. I feel so blessed that for my first film I had somebody who had more experience than me. Richa Chadha never made me feel alone even for a second. From trailer launch to film premier she was always there supporting me. She was so much senior to me in terms of work, but she had never made me feel that I was a newbie or anything. It was always so positive. In fact, after having a co-actor like Richa Chadha in my first film, now If I am working with someone who’s just starting their career or new in the industry, I want to reach out and help them. These are the thing we tend to often forget but in time we need to appreciate these things. 'Masaan' has given me relationships, people, and a connection with Benaras.
'Masaan’ gave me credibility. You can say I had an A+ on my report card and after that what subject I wanted to choose was up to me. I took my time to decide what projects I want, and by that, I don't mean being lazy. Even before ‘Masaan’, I had finished shooting for ' Haram Khor' which was released later. It gave me a good learning experience. I remember, Nawazuddin Bhai telling me once during the film that some actors should be choosy and that struck me. I realized that I want quality over quantity. I love what I do, I really enjoy acting. I think every time we play a character, we give a part of ourselves to the character, so I think it’s important to choose correctly. Both of my films were so fabulous that I didn’t want to compromise on them.
I never had a chance to work with Sushant, but I remember inviting him to the premiere of my film Haram Khor’ to which he replied very sweetly about the kind of work I do and said he’ll try to be there. It was very sweet and humble of him to appreciate my work.
Thankfully, I never had to deal with the outsider struggle and maybe it was because of the project that I was doing. Luckily, when the #MeToo movement was taking over Bollywood, I had not experienced it either and I was not made to feel like I wasn’t enough by anybody. The credit goes to the kind of people I have worked with. They were wonderful.
Not only for actors but for anybody who reads this that the world and society will try to tell you a lot of things about how you should be and how you shouldn't be. But, as an artist, you have to trust your instinct and nothing is more important than that. If you are convinced about your role or your part, you have to work it out and nobody has the right to make you feel small. It will be struggling but a dream big. Shoot for the moon and even if you miss, you will land among the stars.
She opted for nude makeup matching with the outfit and hair all tied up with a thick long braid. She accessorized her look with an entire block of bangles on her arms and big golden Jhumkas. Sitting on a branch of the tree and flaunting her embroidered ghagra, she was looking absolutely elegant.
Actor Shweta Tripathi, best known for her role in the critically acclaimed Masaan in 2015, is now helming the Amazon Prime show Laakhon Mein Ek, about the struggles of a woman doctor in a rural posting. How does she keep fit while busy and on the move? Here’s a look at her fitness routine:
I believe whatever your fitness or body goals, your aim should be to be healthy.
I train thrice a week for 45 minutes to one hour, with a trainer. When I’m traveling I always carry my yoga mat so I can do bodyweight and floor exercises. I love working out with suspended rings. It’s great for the core and toning of the muscles, and it’s fun.
Great food is my battery, it keeps me going. But one suggestion from my nutritionist that has really worked for me is to eat until you are 80% full, and stop. In general, I try for moderation; even when I drink coffee I go for the smaller cup.
I avoid fried foods and have started avoiding packaged foods. Even when they claim it’s healthy, packaged food can’t match fresh food.
Even when traveling for shoots, I snack on homemade dry fruit laddus and makhana. I believe regular doses of healthy snacks keep me healthy. I think we tend to crave more junk food when we stay hungry for too long.
The cheat food I think of most is cheese naan and chili chicken dry.
